New Winchester Gun Safes Models

New Winchester Gun Safe Models for 2010

This just in, Winchester Gun Safes models new for 2010. Winchester as you know is based in Fort Worth, Texas. Some of the new features I want to point out on these safes are…. First Winchester has increased the fire rating temps on all its models. Plus all but the Ranger series has “4 way bolt action”. Before I go to far I should point out what that means to you and me.  Lets take a look at the door opening in the picture on the details page.  Other manufacturers put the bolts on the hinge side that are fixed or welded into spot or, as with the case of internal hinges, there are none.  However with Winchester series they have gone to the added  expense of having more secure bolt work where the hinge side, top side, bottom side, and opening side all move. Just like on a jewelry vaults. Another important feature to point out is they increased the quality of the fire resistant material. Please note the external tempature has gone from a good rating of 1200 degrees to 1400 degrees. The 4 new models are…(hear the drum roll)…. The Supreme, Silverado, Western, and Ranger gun safes.

Winchester Supreme Gun Safe is first in the rankings. It is rated for 2 hour fireproof with 20, 2 inch thick bolts.  That’s amazing, its positively top of the line in quality, integrity, and strength. I’m so impressed with it that I  give it a solid 10 rating on my “Cool” scale.  Now with pistol pockets and 4 way bolt action as standard on this model.

The Winchester Siverado Gun Safes have replaced the Legacy series. This series is rated for 1 1/2 hour fireproof and has 1 1/2 inch thick bolts. It also comes  the 4 way bolt action like jewelry vault as a standard feature. But to go further,  they made the door thicker. Its huge at almost 6 inches thick! Thats alot gun safe for this kinda money.

Winchester Western Gun Safes series are rated for 1 hour fireproof and use 1.25 inch thick bolt (are you getting the impression that while other manufactures are going cheaper quality and price, Winchester is going up in quality but not in price?) Very impressive gun safe. Solid built with top of the line steel and of course UL listed lock just like on the best models.  Again with the 4 way action bolt work.  Other companies are going to have to step up their game to compete on this level.

Winchester Ranger Gun Safes
is the entry level gun safe. But don’t get this safe confused with anything sold in a big box retailer. For an entry level gun safe this is one of the best. Its not cheap or flimsy. Very well made 45 minute fireproof and excellant bolt work. Though this model only have 2 way action bolts, it locks solid and is a very good deal for the money. (note that most models in this price range only have moving bolts on the door opening side and fixed on the hinge side…this is another impressive upgrade from Winchester).  I also want to point out something small and that is the quality of the liner or carpet on the inside.  Normally gun safes in this catagory cheap out and use what we call “mouse fur” for the liner. Which is really cheap crap.  But not Winchester.  The are still using a very high quality upgraded material even on this entry level model.

Overall Winchester Gun Safes are changing the way the industry is looking at gun safes.  Bringing quality, workmanship, and a better product to the gun collector.  All this for extremely reasonable prices.  I hope this helps in your search for gun safes.

Get a drop safe to store large bills and cash

If you run a retail business, you could lower the risk of being robbed of your cash during business hours by using a drop safe.  A drop safe is designed to accept deposits of small items like cash or jewelry without opening the safe.  If the cashier working in your store doesn’t have the combination to the drop safe, then any deposits made during the day are safe from would-be robbers.

If you have your employees deposit their extra cash at periods throughout the day, there will never be more than a certain amount in the cash register.  And you can have them immediately deposit any large bills that come in.  Drop safes are made in a variety of sizes and shapes, so you should be able to find one that suits your business to a “t”.  For more information on the drop safe.

Fire Safes – Use them to protect your documents and other valuables from damage due to fire and water

Fire safes are designed to protect their contents from damage due to fire and water.  They are specially tested under actual fire conditions to make certain that the contents remain undamaged.  A typical fire rating is a 1-hour fireproof rating.  This means that the safe has been tested to withstand a 1700 degree F fire for a period of 1 hour, and that the temperature inside the safe did not rise above 350 degrees F.  This is a low enough temperature to prevent permanent damage to documents and other valuables.

In addition, the humidity is checked while the fire is being distinguished with water, and  did not rise above 80%.  This makes certain that the safe will not leak any water that could destroy valuable documents.  Fire safes have special seals on the doors which expand when heated, thus sealing out the water.  For more information on fire safes.
